Angels Fall

QUESTION: Why did the Angels fall?

ANSWER:

What caused the angels’ fall? When the fallen angels, led by Lucifer, challenged God’s rule, they failed their created purpose of worshiping and serving God. The Bible reports that Satan was cast from heaven to earth (Luke 10:18)

Speaking of Lucifer (Satan), the Bible says, “All your pomp has been brought down to the grave, along with the noise of your harps; maggots are spread out beneath you and worms cover you. How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, "I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain (Isaiah 14:11-13).

The history of Satan and the fallen angels is described in the Bible in Isaiah 14:12-15 and Ezekiel 28:12-19. These two biblical passages also reference the king of Babylon, the King of Tyre, and the spiritual power behind the kings.

Lust for power had infested their soul, strangling faith in God’s wisdom which says love and service for one another is greater than power in rank, status, or authority. God’s natural law of divine morality is defined relationally. Those first in power will be last because God humbles the proud and honors the humble.

The rebellious angels became their Creator’s adversary. What began as a lustful seed of power flourished in spreading evil among the human race. God, however, had a plan of salvation to defeat sin, Satan, and death. His Son, Christ Jesus accomplished the plan when He took our punishment on the cross (Colossians 2:15; Hebrew 2:14)!

Why did the Angels fall – Are they dangerous?
Fallen angels spend their time tempting, taunting, teasing, deceiving, afflicting, and accusing people of wrongdoing. They keep people stirred up in confusion and chaos, alienated from their sole hope: God.

Satan commands his evil legions. Ultimately, however, all are bound to the sovereign control of God (Job 1).

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
